To Prepare A Place

Today, reply is on the fulfillment of divine promises and works that include Christ returning to the earth to claim his followers who will exist as immortal, incorruptible companions to divinity. The salvation of GOD is to be seen in the divine delay for carrying out the sentence of death incurred by the first pair (Adam). Judgment, human existence as nomads, and an ongoing condition of mortality could not be broken off, interrupted, or reversed without multiple divine operations (e.g., atonement, forgiveness, government, rebirth, provision of a homeland, resurrection, sanctification). While utter destruction and the second death have been reserved for an appointed time through grace, mercy, and divine righteousness, the transformation of mankind that was begun to restore the offspring of Adam can only be completed through the living presence of the Creator. It is written: Titus 2: 11-15, King James Version (KJV): 11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; 13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. Also: Revelation 1: 7-8, KJV: 7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. 8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

Is Jesus coming? ?

Seems like right now more then ever i am seeing post and people saying that they have dreamed about the rapture and that the end is here. I am having panic attacks.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city. (Hebrews 11: 14-16, KJV)

Afrida”, many mature Christian believers now agree that mankind is in a period of divine grace; and the ongoing process of GOD continues to be one of making divine fullness (we also say, divinity; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Ghost) known and visible. In addition to divinity appearing in flesh as Jesus Christ (we say, the Incarnation), there have been clear proclamations of commitment to divine law, to revealed eternal purpose, and to sacred promises and prophecy along with declarations of continuing love, forgiveness, mercy in judgment to those who actually are guilty, and reconciliation. Believers are commanded to expect (hope for) the completion and fulfillment of specific divine works. Included are a harvesting of those from the earth who belong to GOD through Jesus Christ at the Savior’s appearing (we also say, the Rapture, the Second Coming); the end of mortality; the perfection of mankind as immortal and incorruptible; the descent of the Holy City (New Jerusalem) from heaven to the earth; and the further extension of existence and eternal life for mankind upon the earth. As the offspring of GOD, joint-heirs with Jesus Christ, and the new creation, believers no longer need rely on dreams and prophetic demonstrations, for all are to discern the active presence who is GOD through their own fresh endowment of sacred substance. Inseparable spirit matter from the makeup of divine fullness has been poured forth that includes balance, commitment, completeness, faith, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, oneness without sameness, personhood, wisdom, and wrath against sin. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a selection from the prophecies and music ministry of Vickie Winans:

(1.) John 14: 1-3, King James Version (KJV): 1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

(2.) 2nd Peter 1: 2-8, KJV: 2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, 3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; 6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; 7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. 8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

(3.) 1st Thessalonians 4: 13-18, KJV: 13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (4.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LtVhiiu6VLc.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
